Welcome to Year 3 – Y3CD
Mrs Harrison with Teaching Assistant Miss Gascoyne
In Year 3, the curriculum is engaging, fun and creative. Each term, we focus on a core topic that links to all other curriculum areas. This term our topic question is ‘What is Strength? Our educational visits are core to our curriculum and we are visiting Kelham Island Museum to look at the strength of The Great Sheffield flood and how the people of Sheffield had to be strong. to Dudley Zoo and Weston Super-Mare add to the children’s enthusiasm and inspire their learning. This will allow the children to immerse themselves into the curriculum and bring back a real life experience into the classroom!
The English curriculum covers a range of texts and genres, from diary entries to performance poetry. Phonics is taught as part of interventions if children require further support. Each day the children strive to become more independent and imaginative writers. Reading also takes place daily, with Guided Reading, which focuses on core content domains. Our Year 3 Maths curriculum covers a range of concepts, including number, geometry, measure and statistics. The curriculum enables the children to be fluent in the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) as well as solve problems.
Overall in Year 3, the children aspire to show care, independence, teamwork and most of all aim to try their best.
